My LO went through a stage similar to this at 9 months!
I think it's a combination of factors but was mainly teeth for us. She refused all food except yoghurt (this is the child who loved mackerel!) and would drink lots of milk but just wouldn't eat. It didn't last long! She's probably waking up because her teeth hurt /wants comfort / still hungry as she's eating less than she used to. Teething granules / camomile tea does really help (if you can get it down her!)
The nappy change issue is, apparently, definitely a phase but LO is 12 months now and hates having her nappy changed, specially if we're out and about. It's really quite stressful isn't it! At home, something like my phone, holding the nappy etc .distracts her a little. xxxx
